History of the 1913 Secession in the Socialist Party of Washington
by Frans Bostrom, State Secretary
Published by the Socialist Party of Washington, March 1914

This extremely rare 16 page pamphlet details the factional politics dividing the Washington state organization of the Socialist Party of America between 1911 and 1913. Bostrom, State Secretary from September 1909, details the way in which the party's Right Wing, headed by Dr. Edwin J. Brown, engaged in constructing a parallel state organization before ultimately splitting the party in 1913 when it was unable to achieve majority control.
This pamphlet was produced by the direction of the 1914 Washington State Convention of Socialist Party, Seattle, presumably for the edification of the Socialist Party's National Office and governing National Executive Committee, to which the dissident Brown faction had appealed for formal recognition.
No specimens of this pamphlet are shown in OCLC WorldCat. A single specimen survived in the Socialist Party of America papers at Duke University and was filmed up as a part of the large microfilm edition of that material. This file has been digitized from photocopies of that filmed version, with digital editing of a considerable portion of the extraneous surface noise performed by Tim Davenport for this edition.
Published in the United States prior to 1923, public domain.
No copyright is claimed of this digital file and it is released into the public domain without restriction.
